NIHR Policy Research Programme Working Age Consultation Event Launch

Leave a comment

The NIHR Policy Research Programme (PRP) wants to develop the evidence base for policy aimed at improving health and wellbeing, and reducing health inequalities, for people of working age. As employment is one of the key determinants of health, there is a particulate interest in evidence on the relationship between health and work.

The NIHR Central Commissioning Facility and the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) are running an event in London to inform a research specification for a future funding round and allow networking and potential collaborations for individuals from multidisciplinary backgrounds.

  • Date: Thursday 24th October
  • Location: London, tbc.
  • Registration: Free, via this form. Please complete this by 7th October.

The all-day event will include key speakers, a sandpit-style priority setting workshop, and networking. Attendance at this event is free and lunch will be provided. Spaces are limited so please use the expression of interest form to register your interest by 7th October. All spaces, and event information will be confirmed by the organisers after the deadline. This event is open to representatives from medical schools, business schools, charities, the NHS, local authorities, allied health professionals and the public.

If you have an interest in the field but are unable to attend you may wish to complete the Research Question Submission form that will contribute towards informing the debate and priority setting at the consultation event.
